A Christmas Wedding Date movie review
First D.J.: Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today.
Second D.J.: It’s coooold out there every day. What is this, Miami Beach?
First D.J.: Not hardly. And you know, you can expect hazardous travel later today with that, you know, that, uh, that blizzard thing.
Second D.J.: That blizzard – thing. That blizzard – thing. Oh, well, here’s the report! The National Weather Service is calling for a “big blizzard thing!”
First D.J.: Yessss, they are. But you know, there’s another reason why today is especially exciting.
Second D.J.: Especially cold!
First D.J.: Especially cold, okay, but the big question on everybody’s lips…
Second D.J.: – On their chapped lips…
First D.J.: – On their chapped lips, right: Do ya think Phil is gonna come out and see his shadow?

Both: GROUNDHOG DAY!
I mean A Christmas Wedding Date. A totally original movie that is in no way a Groundhog Day ripoff.
Like 12 Dates of Christmas and a million other cheap made for TV movies before it, A Christmas Wedding Date is a quickly written knockoff with nothing original to say or any surprises of any kind. And yet, that doesn’t mean it’s fundamentally flawed, either.
Look, there’s not a lot to say about this movie. It’s guilty of the traditional city shaming and lazy writing, but if you like George Wendt
Marla Sokoloff (Stephanie’s mortal enemy turned best friend on Full House) and schmaltzy romance, then give this movie a whirl. It’s a little boring, padded to fill out running time and isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel, but it’s generally inoffensive.
